Hommage a Cziffra

Vida Monika Ruth piano recital


Since her childhood, pianist Mónika Ruth Vida has been dedicated to the love of music. Her dream and ambition are to convey the joy and healing power of music to everybody. Despite her young age, she has already given concerts in most European countries and she has also toured Africa, the USA and several Asian countries. After gaining success on the Hungarian and international music scenes, she was as young as merely 14 years old when she won her first international competition in Serbia, which was soon followed by her debut in China at the Shanghai World Expo. As a multiple contest-winner, she received her latest first prize at the 5th Coimbra World Piano Meeting, and she has also received an award by the Italian Parliament in acknowledgment of her outstanding musical performances.

She graduated with honours from Franz Liszt Academy of Music in 2016 and in 2020. Her first great-scale concert series entitled “Neither Memories, Nor Magic” also premiered in Pesti Vigadó in September 2019. The year 2020 could not pass without rapt excitement for her: in recognition of her outstanding achievements in musical arts Mónika Ruth Vida received Hungary’s Junior Prima Award. But the greatest challenge so far awaiting Mónika Ruth Vida presents itself in 2021: she is the only Hungarian contestant to have received invitation to take part in the live rounds of the 18th Chopin Piano Competition.
